Chevron scarf


yarn: Karaoke 50% soy silk, 50% wool, 3 balls/~ 300 meters/150g (even though I did not enjoy this yarn for this project, I think with another striping or multicolored yarn this is a nice pattern)

needles: 5mm

size: 5" x 64"

Cast on 35 sts (I've used long tail cast on).

for the whole length of scarf: slip the first stitch as if to purl with yarn in front, and purl the last stitch of each row. This makes a nice braided like edge.


Sl1-K2-Psso: Slip (as if to purl) - K next 2 sts together - pass slipped sts over


K1fb: knit once in front and once in back loop of the same stitch


row 1: sl1, (K1,P1) 3 times, K1, K1fb, k7, Sl1-K2-Psso, K7, K1fb, (K1,P1) 4 times.

row2: sl1, knit to last stitch, Purl.

You might want to place a marker before K1fb and after the second K1fb.

Repeat these two rows until desired length.

Bind off. The beginning and the end will NOT match.

This pattern is for your personal use. You can share it with your friends or use it for charity knitting, but do not use it for commercial use. If you print it make sure my information is included.
